Breakfast Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats With Cashew Black Garlic Milk Surprise
My Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats might come to you as a surprise. It did to me! Back in time I wouldn’t even eat breakfast! But, hey! People change as their habits do.
Apart from eggs florentine, banana bread and sourdough pancakes, I don’t believe I have ever shared a breakfast recipe on Garlic Matters before. It might have had something to do with the fact that it used to be an easily skippable part of my daily routine.
After quitting hospitality I had to teach myself a new routine which would include going to bed before midnight and eating breakfast. I am glad that these days I am able to start my day with a bowl of such an amazingly tasting Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats, knowing that it will not only truly nourish my body, but also give me the pure energy to get on with things without the feeling of bloating or heaviness.
I totally appreciate the fact that, if you haven’t been following Garlic Matters so far, the biggest surprise might in fact be the indication of garlic content in this clearly breakfast recipe.
Yup. You got it right. But hear me out my friend! Cinnamon apple overnight oats wouldn’t be as delicious and healthy if it wasn’t for this peculiar addition!
The reason I am telling you to put black garlic in your breakfast bowl is because:
- Black garlic is absolutely packed with antioxidant – it contains at least twice as much antioxidants as raw garlic. Black garlic is of course completely free of the raw garlic’s famous kick and pungency and it does not give you garlic breath.
- Black garlic is super tasty and works great with fruits (fresh and dry), chocolate, various spices, nuts and rich sauces – raw or cooked. It has a very mild garlic flavour dominated by umami, balsamic, dark chocolate and caramel notes with a texture of supercharged, posh sultanas!
- It adds luxurious richness and bags of deliciously moreish and puzzling flavour.
I really do hope that this little recipe will hopefully motivate you to make a wholesome breakfast to enjoy first thing instead of gluten, dairy or refined sugar packed usual suspects. You’ll feel energised, satisfied and fresh. Promise! No heaviness or bloating, pure energy and goodness first thing! Only fabulous mornings from now on!
